  1. Yep but to do it for the entire length of your life is another thing... So do you have any proof from sunni traditions that the Prophet (saw) instructed us to do this for the sake of comfort and abandon the five daily prayers at their fixed times?? Talk about taking things literally... How about the 'Hidden imam' does he combine his prayers everyday too?? I guess he has all the time in the world so why combine??
  2. Shia's have lost their God but don't worry they have the Imaams!!! The Shia belief about Allah & His Attributes is shaped by their Neo-platonic concepts derived from their philosophical (Muta’zili, Ashar’i) forefathers. Allah (the Most High) according to their beliefs, is lost somewhere between their intellect and the limitations of universal matter. Take a look at the ambiguous Lord in the Shi’i beliefs: • The dhaat (essence) of Allah He has no essence, He does not comprehend by means of the five senses.... He has no qualities (attributes), all of His attributes & actions of fi’liyya (action) are rejected as this according to metaphysics affirms He is finite and not limitless, vision cannot be possible for Allah because it does not fit in with their reasoning, therefore God doesn’t Exist nor does He Doesn’t Exist, His Being goes beyond all linguistic concepts and is beyond all knowledge. (from Shi’i sources) • Shi’i have a conditional belief in His Will – only if it is connected to Al Adl, He is not truly the creator of all things (ie. Humans create evil - it’s not God) • His Hands, Face, Eyes, Well again the Shi’i say these are not what God meant in the Quran (Although He is the Most Perfect in His Speech) such terms are misleading according to the shi’i scholars who have a supreme intellect and know what God meant hence: It is the Imams who are the Proof (hujja), the Gate (bab), the Tongue (lisan), the Face (wajh) and the Eye (ayn) of Allah on His creation... the executors of the ALL the affairs (wuluh al amr) of Allah among His creation... (it’s a pity the Hujja has been absent for his divine duty for over 1000 years) Everything will perish except the Face of Allah (28:88) is the Imaams. (see your local bookstore for a book called al Kafi) What follows from their tahreef (distortion) of the Quranic ayah's pertaining to Allah's Attributes is that: 1. Allah is not worshipped correctly due to such an unclear picture of Allah Azwajjal and He is Free from what they associate With HIM. As the shia don’t know their Lord they don’t Worship Him, Invoke Him, Fear Him, Love Him, put their trust in Him as has been ordered in the divine revelation. Much of their worship and hopes are directed to their Imams (ra). 2. Many of the rites of Islam are forsaken as Shi’ites give preference to their mythological stories over the Word of Allah. This can be seen from their obsession with the glorification and remembrance of their Imams (ra) and certain historical events from the past. For example: In Shia’ism it is preferred to make pilgrimage to Kerbala over Masjid al Harram although their is no mention of the former in the Qur’an. This can be attributed to the shia belief that the Qur’an is created as i mentioned earlier that they reject that Allah does not comprehend by means of the five senses..... Therefore Allah’s Speech is negated and so is the significance of the Quran as this can be seen from their preference of the stories of the Imams over the stories of the Prophets mentioned in the Quran... to be continued.......
  3. Letter 14 from Nahjul Balagha: Ali (ra) writes to his troops before the Battle of Siffeen - "During the days of the Holy Prophet (peace of Allah be upon him and his descendants) we had strict orders not to touch, molest or insult women though they were unbelievers. Even in pre-Islamic days it was the custom that if a man struck a woman even with a stick or a stone, the revenge had to be taken by his sons and descendants." It was the custom of the Arabs to have immense emotion over the honour of their women & wars would break out between the tribes over violation of the rights of their womenfolk... Albeit not from the sunnah but an example of the immense jealousy & protectionist attitude of the Arabs in contemporary times is that in some bedouin cultures when a bride is brought to the groom upon horseback, the horse is then slaughtered to signify that from this day none but the groom will relish the 'touch of his bride'. The Prophet (saw) continued this tradition by ordering the believers to guard their women & maintain their honour through hijab & segregation: Why is it that we find from shi'i source books that when the rights and honour of Fatima (ra) were supposedly violated (by her house being burnt down, her unborn child being killed) Ali (ra) did not practice what he preached by protecting and avenging the gross violation of her rights??? Rather would anyone with a sound mind name his off spring after the very culprits that violated the sacred life & honour of his wife?? Neither do we find any instance of Fatima's (ra) descendants avenging her sacred blood!!
  4. When it is said to them: "Follow what Allâh has sent down." They say: "Nay! We shall follow what we found our fathers following." (Would they do that!) even though their fathers did not understand anything nor were they guided? [2:170] It is clear that your forefathers did not comprehend Islam if they taught you to combine your daily prayers every single day without reason and to flog yourself to mourn people!
  5. Sorry but are you saying that the most sacred lands of Islam are not run by the Muslims? Well when I visited Saudi last time the authorities facilitated my pilgrimage by all their systems & procedures... So should i be thanking the Yank's or the Saudi's for this? Can you elaborate on your previous nonsensical statement as I think it doesn't address the question as to why shiaism lacks religious & political authority in the presence of the 'hidden' imam??
  6. The ruling you've derived from the narration is a seperate issue but....... The time this narraation was narrated was when Husayn (ra) was about to be killed.... His final instruction was DO NOT show weakness to your enemies by hitting yourself, tearing your clothes etc... So why do you shia insist of debasing the image of islam by behaving like frantic lunatics wielding weapons against themselves - doesn't this make you look weak and retarded amongst your enemies (the sunni's) as well as the non muslims??? I mean if the prohibition was based on the perceptions of the enemies, doesn't that still apply?? I can't imagine how behaving in such pathetic manner would show your enemies strength! If you however consider this a show of strength then since the tragic death of Husayn (ra) what has 'this strength' achieved for the shia??? A thousand years later your Imam is still in 'hiding', you have no absolute authority in the world over Mekka, Medina, Jerusalem or any other aspect of worldly life or politics and finally the shia state of Iran is once again in a downward economic, social and political spiral that shows us no signs of strength but rather is fighting for its survival.....
  7. I fail to see the evidence of you claim from the Quran: And he turned away from them and said: "Alas, my grief for Yûsuf (Joseph)!" And he lost his sight because of the sorrow that he was suppressing. (Yusuf 12:84) He said: "I only complain of my grief and sorrow to Allâh, and I know from Allâh that which you know not. (Yusuf 12:86) This is in contrast to the rituals of ashura practised by the shia who unlike Yaqoub (as) make no attempt to suppress their sorrow. Also i would like to question the legitimacy of the comparison made between the grief of Yaqoub (as) and that of the shia which in my experience is short lived and restricted to 10 or so days a year... From personal experience no sooner do the days of Muharram surpass us that the shia are back to their old 'unislamic' ways of pubbing, clubbing and flirting via shi'i websites - all in the name of the Family of the Prophet.... http://www.youtube.com/watch#playnext=1&playnext_from=TL&videos=OvPqUO7FeBc&v=jRYs0oFSyeI
  8. Brother i dont have this book - i will try my mate who is an imami shia and i will relay my findings after i have read up on the explanation of this hadeeth...... regards
  9. Brother will all due respect can you present to me where you found this explanation of this hadith from? Please cite a bonafide shia commentator: This is due to the fairness of taking and refuting the views of the authoritative shia figures... Please don't tell me this is your own commantary of the hadith......
  10. I'll check the other forum topic shortly but i dont understand when you justify your actions by qouting the actions of Ayesha (ra) - do you consider her actions as Hujja?? Are you not upon the manhaj of Ahle BAyt? - If you claim to be then your source of reference should be your Infalliable imams not personalities you consider sinful, treacherous etc... What i find is intriguing is when the shia realise the proof within their sources actually contradicts them, they starkly deny itsexistance and jump to find proofs from incomprehendable sources.... Another point is when ahlus sunnah find an action of a companion and the statement of the Prophet, the latter is accepted.. Al-Bukhaari (1294) and Muslim (103) narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “He is not one of us who strikes his cheeks, rends his garment, or cries with the cry of the Jaahiliyyah.” This is also what Husayn (ra) preached as was recorded by Shaykh al Mufid in his book Kitaab al Arshad - "Sister, I swear to you and I always keep my oaths - that you must not tear your clothes, nor scratch your face, nor cry out with grief or loss when I am killed"... Shaykh al-Mufid, Kitaab Al Arshad, P349. Do the shia not hold this book as a legitimate shia source???
  11. Towards the final moments of his blessed life Husayn ibn Ali (ra) comforted his sister Zaynab bint Fatima (ra) after she wept, beat her face and tore her garment by the following words: "Sister, fear Allah and take comfort in the consolation of Allah". "Sister, I swear to you and I always keep my oaths - that you must not tear your clothes, nor scratch your face, nor cry out with grief or loss when I am killed"... Shaykh al-Mufid, Kitaab Al Arshad, P349. Why do the shia's ignore such words of wisdom from the Imam himself recorded in their own books?? Can we declare that the emotional facade of self mutilation & lamentation practised by the shia today is contradictory to the teachings of their 'divine infallible imam''??
  12. And what did the Ali (ra) disregard from the previous Caliphate that contradicted the way of Muhammed (saws)?? Maybe it was - Abandoning the Taraweeh Prayer - The abandonment of Jihaad from the front lines - Rejecting the Uthmani mushaf - Restitute fadk back to the children of Fatima (ra) - Profess: self flagellation,muta,combining prayers and sujood on the mud from Kerbala back into mainstream islamic beliefs Rather what ensued was a political struggle with the muslims who disagreed with him over the death of Uthman... Thus you rightly said "Yes it happened so"..... Shouldn't we accept the perfect Decree of Allah as He said "And the Command of Allah is a decree determined". [33:38] He also said: "That was a nation who passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned and you of what you earn. And you will not be asked of what they used to do" [2:134] Why can't the Shia brothers just accept that Ali(ra) accepted what was going on around Him and lived and died an honourable Muslim - You guys really need to move on.
  13. QUESTION - And who is the Ulul Amr of the PRESENT TIME.....? Imam Akhiri Zaman & we CANNOT FIND HIM!!!! :lol: Rather we are forced to obey some Ayatullah sitting in Qom who by your own admissions are not infallible - hence we are in the same boat being led by dictators who sin. Well i guess we have to be patient for a few more hundred years until Iran can enrich Uranium to 150% to ensure the safety of the Imam Akhiri Zaman.
